**How can you care?** 'Because I choose to.' **You make it sound so simple.** 'That's because it is simple. Hard sometimes, but simple.'

I'm learning, albeit about 15 years too late, that I don't have to sacrifice myself for others.

I wonder, if I had learned it then, when ****** was sexually abusing me and I didn't tell my mother for fear of angering her, if things might have been different.

I simply don't have the strength anymore to turn myself off so that someone else feels better.

I think that's a good thing.
